Deleting E-Mail Messages, Contacts, Tasks, and Other Items
In a folder that contains e-mail, for example, you can click the From button
and enter a sender name in the Search box to search for e-mails you
received from a particular person. You can click the Subject button and
enter a keyword to search the subject descriptions in e-mail you received.
Conducting an advanced search
If, woe is me, you can’t find what you’re looking for with an instant search or
a refined search, you can try your luck with an advanced search.
On the (Search Tools) Search tab, click the Search Tools button and choose
Advanced Find on the drop-down list. You see the Advanced Find dialog box,
as shown in Figure 1-4. In the Look drop-down list, choose what you want
to search for. Click the Browse button to open the Select Folder(s) dialog
box, where you can select more than one folder to search in. Then choose
options in the three tabs to formulate your search. Which options are
available depends on which folder you’re searching.

Deleting E-Mail Messages, Contacts,
Tasks, and Other Items
Outlook folders are notorious for filling quickly. E-mail messages, contacts,
and tasks soon clog the folders if you spend any time in Outlook. From time
to time, go through the e-mail folders, Contacts window, Task window, and
Calendar to delete items you no longer need. To delete items, select them
and do one of the following:
✦ Click the Delete button.
✦ Press the Delete key.
✦ Right-click and choose Delete.
